  2. Mail notification uses the first name of displayname (which might be the last name)

    I would consider this more as a bug.
    Problem:
    In all email notifications it looks like it uses the first part of the displayname property (unitl the first space).

    Assumption:
    AD Property Displayname uses Lastname Firstname
    Based on Screenshot this is HOBMAIER Dennis and Maierhofer Andreas.

    Error:
    The Result will be:
    Hello LASTNAME

    LASTNAME (of other participant) sent a chat message.
    See the attached screenshot.

    Expectation:
    Change this to use AD first name attribute.

  3. Mute option for desktop and banner notifications for chats and alerts.

    Please create a mute button or option for all desktop banner notifications for chats and alerts. They are very distracting and annoying.

  5. When someone issues a Chat to you, it should open the Chat window.

    When someone wants to Chat, a Chat window should open up.
    I receive no notifications that someone is chatting with me.
    I have email and banner turned on, but I receive nothing.
    At least make it as good as Skype!!!!

  7. Allow custom alert tones and let us control the volume

    I don’t understand why this feature isn’t available to allow people to choose their own notification tones and adjust the volume. We use Teams for our Corp collaboration tool and when people reach out via chat I never see or hear the notification

  9. Presenter/Meeting Privacy mode

    I'm leaving this under Notifications, but this is what I would like:

    If you are in a meeting or presenting, there should be a setting that will hide anything sensitive from popping up or being shown. This includes:

    - chat/message notifications
    - chat history
    - calendar

    The scenario is you're running a meeting in a room with several others. You fire up Teams to start or join a meeting. Hide anything that you might not want others to see.

    I would set it up so Teams would ask if you want to be in privacy mode on launch. A one-click…

  10. Please give us a setting so we can determine the duration of pop up windows for chats.

    Please give us a setting so we can determine the duration of pop up windows for chats. This would improve the adoption of Teams in our every day work day, especially for reluctant users.

    Please address. There are 1573 votes for this on UserVoice. Please. Give us some control! Please!!!!!

  11. Custom Sounds per Channel Notification

    Each channel notification setting should also be able to add a sound and each should be optional as "per reply" and "per new chat" so this can be really really beneficial. Would allow people that need to monitor multiple chats to know where the activity is without seeing them.

  12. Add ability to set custom status

    Having the ability to set custom status like "going to lunch" from the mobile app at least would be a great way to share your availability in a meaningful way besides "unavailable". Also, can I change to not make my status red when I'm in a meeting?

  13. Set the Notifications on both Mobile and Computer when launching Teams simultaneously.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): Microsoft Teams での通知を PC クライアントおよびモバイル クライアントにて優先通知先を選択したい。

    Set the Notifications on both Mobile and Computer when launching Teams simultaneously.
    ******************************
    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams を PC クライアントおよびモバイル クライアントにて同時に起動した際、優先的に PC クライアント側に通知が来るため、モバイル クライアント側を優先にする設定や双方に通知を行う設定を追加してほしい。

    We acknowledge that Notification will be receiving to Clients app only when Teams are launched simultaneously on a Computer and a Mobile Client.

    For increased availability, it is useful if we can to set up notifications on your Mobile Client preferentially depending on the user's situation. Besides, adding the ability to see notifications on both would be great. Thank you.

  14. New Channel Notification

    When a new channel is created, I would like to get a notification. Currently there is only a silent message added to the general channel and often goes unnoticed. Please add a feature to allow people to enable new channel notifications.

  15. Chat Message Notification Disable Preview

    It would be nice if you could set the notifications to not show a preview, especially when presenting, and not have them stack up the screen.

  16. Need a Teams network flow chart when connecting via VPN

    It would be great you would provide a public information with Teams network flow chart when connecting via VPN on PC and mobile devices.

  17. Need notification that stays on screen until acknowledged by user.

    I would like the option for the Teams screen to maximize or a popup come up whenever a message is received, and stay there until I actually acknowledge it's receipt. Many times, messages are received, and unless you are viewing the screen at all times, the message indication has gone away, and you don't know you received one.

  18. Add a "Mark as Read" button to the pop up Banner

    In the current Pop-up Banner, add a button to mark it as read, like in Outlook. This is especially useful for short notes, like OK or Thanks, or for the like you get on a chat. I just don't think I need to go into the app to clear my notifications.

  19. Customize How Long Banner Notifications Stay Visible

    The main issue my office has had since switching over is that the banner notifications disappear too quickly. Many people are missing them altogether. It would be helpful if there was a way for you to customize how long you want the banner to stay up (or even if there was just one additional option for it to stay up until dismissed).
